Tonia, I'm sorry but YOU made the choice to get Viasat which came with the 24 mon agreement and YOU are the one moving. All you are doing by showing your tail and pulling up the coax and pole is making it THAT much harder on the next installer who has NOTHING to do with Viasat except that he does installation work. In my humble opinion,, you are being a jerk.

That's kinda my point is to make Viasat PAY to have the satellite reinstalled. Way cheaper if Viasat would have just waived the termination fee. Dish Network and Direct TV has always waived the fee for me for a valid reason. Btw I have moved 5 times and this is the first company that will NOT work with me. Yes I'm being a jerk just like Viasat was with me on the phone.

Tonia, the installer gets paid a flat fee....doesn't matter if it takes him 1 hr or 6 hrs. All you did was make sure that some poor guy gets home a lot later than he normally would have. You didn't do ANYTHING to Viasat as a company, only to some individual who has done NOTHING to you. 

Incidentally, you were on VS1 which has a sw view, a new install will be pointed at VS2 which has a se view so there is a VERY good chance that all your spite is for nothing. 

If you sign a 2 yr contract and you KNOW you probably aren't going to fulfill it then that is all I need to know about your character.

Tonia, if I am the new owner then I very much appreciate that you will have removed all of that satellite-related garbage from the property.  You will have saved me the expense.


Pay no attention to the ViaSat apologists that prowl these waters like sharks on the hunt.

The ETF is valid.  It's business, not personal.

This reminds me of one of the cars I saw last time I went car shopping. It was a fairly new car that had been reposesed. The previous owner trashed the interior before it was reposesed.


Basically they couldn't afford the payments so they decided to get even by trashing something they didn't own. It boggles my mind how people can be so irresponsible.

Ok let's get some facts straight here. Yes I move a lot,to the tune of 6 times in the last 20 years. We build a home and sell every 2-4 years. We live in them for at least 2 years to avoid capital gains and do it all over again. You will never get anywhere in life if you don't fight these billion dollar companies. $90 isn't much you say,but multiply that over the years and it really adds up. This will probably be my final home and will have NO contract cable HIGH speed CABLE internet! For inquiring minds,I chose the high road and left the dish and cable. Might change my mind tomorrow... Final closing on the property@1pm.

All that money you're evidently saving by avoiding capital gains and you're worried about $90, and at this point, with it being the last time?  SMH.  

And, it's not like it's a choice.  You owe it, and legally so.

Makes you wonder if she signed a one year lease for her apartment. It's going to be interesting when she tells them she is moving in five months.

Viasat does charge an Early Cancellation Fee if you terminate the service prior to the completion of the agreement. If you were continuing the service that would be a different story but since the service is ending prior to the end of the agreement the fee will apply

They won't get any thrills by watching what my old SB2 modem will show them, it is on a bookcase in the back room where I seldom go. The best they probably can get is my cat wandering around looking for whatever cats look for.

Ok, so nothing in this thread is productive.  Tonia, you are obviously aware of the consequences of not paying your fees.  We're sorry the relationship with our company has ended on a sour note, and wish you good luck in your future endeavours.  

If you wish to discuss this further, please feel free to email us at ViasatListens@viasat.com.
